of energy in the world, needs to redouble its efforts. the pentagon is already moving in the right direction, but it's not just about saving money in the long term. it's providing operational flexibility and reducing velarde nurblet from inefficient and dangerous fossil fuels. those fuel tanker trucks in afghanistan and iraq might as well have had great big bull's eyes on them for terrorists. the military knows this, and we should give maximum support even in a time of gradually reducing pentagon budgets. this will pay dividends for defense and to the family budget if the pentagon gets it right. it's clear that america is ready and equal to this challenge. the president has signaled his interests in leadership. the question is whether congress is equal to the challenge, ready with innovation, cooperation and leadership. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from texas, mr. poe, for five minutes. mr. poe: mr. speaker, in a remote region of algeria at an oil and gas facility in the dark of night before the sun rose, workers from all over the world were getting ready to si

by the pentagon when it was revealed that he sent e-mails to kelly that some officials found flirtatious. >> so the general allen situation, david, just your gut on that. what a mess. >> i don't know what the internet version of a tempest in a teapot is, but this is one where the pentagon, i think, rushed to investigate behavior, where there was very little evidence of wrongdoing. the fbi and the justice department had been reviewing all these e-mails, as part of their investigation of general petraeus. and they threw them all over the pentagon. the pentagon goes, geez, what do we do now? and they decided, gosh, i guess we better investigate them. so the inspector general at the pentagon was ordered by secretary panetta from his plane, he's traveling and says, gosh, we better do the investigation. so that's been rolling along. and there was never a thought to be evidence of real wrongdoing. general allen has been held up. he's our commander in kabul. he's a very fine general. and so it's good that this finally ended today. >> so what we've got, 9:00 eastern time, in about 15 minutes, the bengha
. this is the great ironny. from the pentagon point of view, women are banned from ground combat. on the ground, women have been fighting in combat in iraq and afghanistan for ten years. >> host: was there a typical experience for women in iraq and afghanistan, for american soldiers? >> guest: um, it's hard to say "typical" because it really did vary depending on the year they were serving, where they were serving and who they were serving with. um, but the stories i did hear were the most common story i heard were ones of isolation. because, as i said, one in ten troops are women, but they don't necessarily get deployed together. so many women serve with a very small number of other women, vastly outnumbered by men, sometimes even alone. i've talked to women who were the only one serving with 60 men. the isolation of serving like that can lead to a lot of problems. from constant harassment and loneliness to sexual assault and rape. and i did hear a great deal more of those stories than i expected when i started my research. gls and that seems to be a common theme in "the lonely soldier," harassment,

-range ballistic missile with a nuclear warhead last month. >>> the pentagon meanwhile offering limited support to french troops as they continue to fight islamic militants in mali. transport planes are helping move men and gear into the west african country but officials insist the american footprint on the ground will stay small. france also asking for help refueling its warplanes but president obama has not yet made a decision on whether he will authorize the use of u.s. aerial tankers. he's asking for more information from france on its overall plans. the fear is that more u.s. involvement could endanger american personnel and facilities in the region if we come to be seen as a cocombatant in that conflict. then back here at home, national rifle association chief wayne lapierrre is keeping up his combative stance with president obama, now attacking the inaugural address. in a speech in reno last night lapierrre accused the president of attacking supporters of the second amendment saying universal background checks are good for two things, either taxing gun owners or taking their guns away.
of the united states senate. you can build a pentagon three times in that time frame. it's time that -- to pass a budget out of the united states senate and senator reid should not be paid until it's done. the house has acted responsibly. we have met our deadlines, we have set our priorities, i was part of the house budget committee when we put together budgets that try to get our out-of-control spending under control and rein in our $16 trillion in debt. the sfat has not acted one time in that time frame. it's time to make the hard choices and do the work necessary to restore fiscal responsibility to washington. it's time for senator reid to pass a budget or withhold his paycheck. thank you, i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. we'll have order in the chamber, please. for what purpose does the gentleman from minnesota seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute, revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman is recognized for one minute. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i
recruiter. i have gone to the pentagon in support of the secretary of -- i'm sorry, sergeant major of the army in the 1980's so i'm going to say this and quantify by saying, on a security level, i think secretary clinton handled this very well. in the history of the united states, so much information is being demanded, that breaches security for the department of defense and all the other agencies within the military that i don't think these senators are aware of what they are asking her to divulge. when you say, why wasn't the video available? some information i classified -- is classified to a certain degree that they can't release it immediately. when we have people on foreign soil, our soldiers and marines, their jobs are limited by the act here in the united states and they know they can't go out there and say, hey, you guys are waving these flags, get away or to shoot them. they can't do that. so, to me, naive attitude that the senators who asked those hard questions were asking -- ludicrous. no way they should have been allowed to give responses immediately or to have firsth
's terrible. in "the washington post," the number of people working on s cybersecurity for the pentagon is going to increase fivefold. the department of defense's cyber command which mainly focuses on kpourt systems is going to increase to nearly 5,000 troops and civilians. the retooled program will include combat mission forces who may help military commanders by disabling an encommand and control system before a military attack. tell us about it, richard. >> both cyber defense and cyber offense. you speak to anyone in the military in the intelligence community, this is the first thing they talk about. it's an area of great advantage for us. look at the way we use computer viruses. we can organize information in ways that others can't. on the other hand, everything we do as a society, everything we do as a military is now based upon cyber. so we're both the best but also the most vulnerable ultimately. so the idea that we're throwing enormous resources at this, this is no coincidence. it's not a one-time thing. this is now the future. >>> from our parade of papers, "the kansas city sta
of wrongdoing by the pentagon. this, as jill kelly, the woman who triggered the investigation in the first place, speaks out for the first time. nbc's kerry sanders is outside kelly's home in tampa, florida, this morning. kerry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. it's been three months since news broke of the secret love affair between general david petraeus and his biographer, paula broadwell. it all came to light after jill kelly, who lives in the house over there, contacted the fbi about what she called threatening e-mails. throughout all of this, jill kelly has remained silent, until now. socialite jill kelly was thrown into the media spotlight last october as the story of general david petraeus and his affair with biographer paula broadwell unfolded. kelly was described in the media as the other, other woman. now she's telling her side of the story in an interview with a reporter for the daily beast, describing the ordeal as a living nightmare. >> jill kelly seemed to me to be someone who didn't quite know what hit her. she doesn't think she did anything wrong. her life has

military leaders the pentagon to cut from unsuccessful and outdated programs and put more money into the most successful and important programs. with that said, the only thing worse than the defense cuts and sequestration is no cuts at all. if we don't have the sequestration cuts at the top line revenue level went we will increase the debt ceiling with almost nothing to show for it. part of the reasons why the house republicans this week, extended the debt ceiling for three months to feel out paul ryan and his team to draft a budget that gets us balanced in 10 years but also protects the department of defense from further cuts because they have already been cut by $500 billion. >> do you get the idea, do you get the sense that americans are tired of world business. that doing some business here at home is gaining traction with people. are they world leadership weary? is the american hour ticking to a close? >> i think there is a degree of war weariness among the american people. it is not surprising. when your commander in chief is war weary you will be as well. when i was leadi

of war is -- jay johnson, the general kuns counsel of the pentagon, gave a speech about thinking about ending that war. we think about iraq and afghanistan. the hot wars. boots on the grounds wars. the broader framework of war under which we labor through the amf i agree with you the odds are slim that we're going to see a repeal of that, an end to that, but i think it's a place for the conversation to go in the second term as the president headed towards withdrawal with afghanistan and the physical presence we have of u.s. soldiers. >> as we start to understand what an obama foreign policy is. i mean, you look back at the first inaugural just compared with the second inaugural address. the first inaugural address was about ending the era of bush and cheney. that's really what it was about. it was about we're going to do this in i different way. if you unclench your fist. it's a different time now. he has to figure out what he is going to do affirmatively, not in reaction to the way somebody else did it that he disapproved of. >> look at the change in personnel. to go from gates to hil
to the pentagon, kerry to the state department and is lew as chief of staff. andrea mitchell, back outside. >> as people are leaving here, those nominations are pretty much expected to go through. of course, chuck hagel has been the most controversial. but this is really a cabinet and our friends doris kearns goodwin, of course, really has written so eloquently about the team of rivals approach of the first obama cabinet and the parallels, of course, to abraham lincoln. we think so much about lincoln today. we think about martin luther king jr. today and the all of the echos of equal rights that came through in the speech. but this is going to be a cabinet not of rivals, but of friends and colleagues, of very close colleagues and we see what we are expecting next, of course, janice mcdonough to be chief of staff. i think the president has a comfort level with these people and the question will be whether he listens to outside voices. he says he has huge challenges, but i thought that the tone of this speech was, aside from the policy prescriptions, much more eloquent than i had expected, f
issues, particularly gay rights, were settled during his first term, when at the pentagon and throughout all military service, "don't ask, don't tell" was ended under his watch and he embraced formally for the first time gay marriage across the country. what arguments are to be settled for fought for in the future? climate change, immigration and tax reform among others. the president did at one point in his speech say there are some parts of government that need to be reformed, but our usefulness of one small olive branch to republicans. but we are not a nation of takers and the fundamental foundations of the great society, medicare, medicaid and social security will be preserved under his watch and the encroachments republicans would like to make on those programs from the president's perspective in the name of deficit reduction will be, if not repelled, at least resisted. scott? >> major, thank you very much. this is the crowd in washington, d.c., live, as they begin to wander away from the national mall, after witnessing american history firsthand. during the president's first inaugu
